    We need plenty of evidence of the cheating. I would like to see other’s screen shots too. Cheating would not be a surprise to me since I’ve seen too much of the media trying to hide the popularity of Ron Paul. Seems very strange to have Herman Cain win so largely, when he’s not pulled well anywhere else.

    Prison Planet screen shot. If anyone else has this screen shot, or similar, make it public folks.

    Finishing behind Santorum is never a strong anything. Sometimes I really hate my state. Santorum wants to stay in Iraq forever (thanks prick, I’m there right now), Cain was on the BoD for the KS Fed back in 1996, Romney is too inconsistent and Perry is, well, Perry. Wake up FL!

    Paul wasn’t even at the event…to get 10 percent at a straw poll you don’t campaign at is very significant, especially a mainstream state like Florida that cherished social security

    From everything I have read, this straw poll is different. They have to pay $175 to go. To be able to go they have to go through several “meetings” with their local GOP establishment. Only so many people get to go through to the actual convention. The people actually have to start the whole process several months before the event. It seems to be very establishment. A few people on RonPaulForums.com went to the event and described the process. Also, Ron Paul was at the debate Thurs night, Fri he had a breakfast at the event and he also spoke to everyone at the event Fri morning, then he went to LSU for a speech and then to the opening of his Louisiana office. I think he headed to another state after that. He is a very busy man and is in no way slacking, IMO.

    born and raised in Florida, and a big Ron Paul supporter, but I must admit, my state is one of the dumbest in the nation. Sorry guys.

    It’s alright guys, he’s going to be on the Daily Show on Monday; that will be a huge boost to get his message out there. Florida is a tough state to win and it’s still early in the race.

    Picking and choosing their straw polls, Paul was up in 4 online polls the day after the debate. By wide margins. Fox, daily news, some CNN guys online site and some other site. They are cheating and most of America doesn’t care to open their eyes……smh

    Ron Paul will win as he is a winner. He has already won Florida. Just have to be aware of where you are getting your news. Chin Up!

    I don’t believe these straw poll numbers can be trusted. It doesn’t matter anyway. If Ron Paul doesn’t win the GOP nomination, I’m writing in his name. I will not vote for status quo, neocon rinos ever again!

    So unfortunate. It means that he doesn’t have the GOP backing he needs for the nomination, BECAUSE HE CAN’T BE BOUGHT BY THE GOP…they only want divisive fanatics like Boehner.

    Freedom is a Cuban battle cry. Overcome their elder’s fears and the state can be won.

    I can’t believe you people believe the main stream media didn’t you see the polling results taken by Fox News Ron Paul won by a Hugh margin and Yahoo also did a poll and the same things. Fox took down the poll and then lied and said Cain won this is a lie. Spread the word. Go to prisonplanet.com and see the screen shot for yourself and look at my screen shot of yahoo poll

    And obviously the newest immigrants aren’t the ones voting, but they’re extremely grateful to be here so become citizens asap…and then DO vote..their kids (of which I am one) are raised to be extremely patriotic to America..so its not impossible for Paul to appeal to them but as the parents are old, it goes back to their bennies again…

    According to detailed polls Pauls weakest showing is with retired people…over 55 and above. This should not surprise since Florida is all about that age group..that and Cuban exiles and their offspring. The elderly are afraid of his anti SSI/medicaid pisitions..and Cubans don’t know him. They are also mortified of anything that smells of communism and are very conservative voters, but need a great deal of govt assistance since they emigrate here with very little. Florida is very generous to old people…free medical, nearly free housing, low taxes, etc. Any language against that and they’re going to vote for someone else. So do not expect too much there unless he can overcome their fears of losing govt benefits. I know…my parents are Cuban exiles and im related to probably half the state…8-)

    U know what sucks. is ron paul has to dumb down his message so he can get more votes. Any one who talks about the inflation tax and says the irs doesnt have the right to tax people but they have the guns thats why its law…. obviously is for u and me.. or

    Its a strong fifth because 2nd through 5th was very close. Too bad maybe 50-100 people more didnt show up or it would have been second

    But it really doesn’t matter, not something to cry about if he loses. You get the message out there and if they don’t want it woe to them, the other candidates reek of status quo..
